Coronavirus: Trains Safety Council Update

Covid-19 crisis update
Today the RMT THSC took part in a conference call with LU to discuss the ongoing Covid-19 crisis and
measures that were being put in place to reduce risk to all parties.

In response to this crisis emergency timetables are now in place so as to allow key workers to get around. This plan has clearly not worked with trains, especially early in the morning, carrying large amounts of people making social distancing impossible.

Ezra Christian Sacked Unfairly

Train Operator Ezra Christian Sacked

 

Bakerloo Line Management have today dismissed Ezra over an incident which should have been dealt with by a corrective action plan. 

The RMT Bakerloo Line  branch will support Ezra in every way possible. 

 

Bakerloo drivers' strike goes ahead on Friday

RMT strike action on Bakerloo Line goes ahead Friday as LU refuse serious talks

TUBE UNION RMT confirmed today that strike action on the Bakerloo line in a dispute over the impact on train drivers over unworkable timetable changes that place operators under intolerable levels of personal stress will go ahead as planned from lunchtime on Friday after tube bosses slammed the door on serious talks aimed at reaching a solution.

Our ballot returned a 95% majority for taking industrial action. At the heart of this dispute, and what most people believe to be the problem with our timetables, are the turnaround times in the North Sheds at Queen’s Park. These turnaround times have been cut to the bone over the past couple of years. The RMT have demanded that these are improved. This in turn would require moredrivers. This in turn would make our working day bearable.

RMT to reballot on excessive track noise

- please download the attached leaflet and display it in relevant depots.

Members on the Northern, Jubilee, Central and Victoria lines are currently receiving ballot papers relating to excessive track noise.

The ballot will be conducted on a line by line basis. This ballot has been forced upon us in response to the TU Act 2016 which exhausts ballot mandates after 6 months, meaning that the resounding yes vote mandate that was returned last year would expire in March.
